Gary Krakow of TheStreet.com suggested that there is not much in it between the two phones and said that perhaps the best way of deciding which one to buy is for people to find out which email systems are used by their employers.
“If your company prefers BlackBerry email, go for the Storm. If it uses Exchange mail, then the iPhone is a great choice,” he said.
Mr Krakow explained that in general the iPhone is “fantastic” but its voice services are far from perfect, while the Storm is “terrific” but lacks Wi-Fi capabilities.
Mazuma Mobile will pay £184 to people looking to recycle an old but working iPhone 3G 8Gb, while a working BlackBerry Storm 9500 can be purchased for £85 by the website.
